Yes, 5-speeds are readily available. Never seen a time when there wasn't a couple for sale. $300 is affordable too.
Here today gone tomorrow

Lucky.  :thumbup:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Are the frames themselves rusty? Or where it bolts into the door?

Trying to locate a MK2 golf to scavenge the steel flares

 

You can get aftermarket fenders for a MK1 on JC Whitney fairly cheap? I think the left was $40ish and the right was $70ish?

 

On my buddy Tim's 1200 (dimlight65) we used 4 front fenders from a Dodge Omni. They don't have the body line crease the MK1/MK2 Golfs do...

 

No pics when we first did them, only what they look like now...   :sleep:

 

Omni for comparison:

I cant find any supplier of Omni tins.

 

We had the same problem. Ended up spending a few Saturdays cruising junkyards looking for Omnis... 

 

Asswhip, and ended up being only slightly cheaper than new Chinese Golf fenders...    :rofl:
